The distribution of capital and labour in the contemporary world is undergoing a radical change. Traditional industries in the West are in decline while in the third world cheap, plentiful labour is available and increasingly attractive.

This book analyzes the implications of this situation for both developed and less developed nations. It examines the impact such a shift of resources will have on the rich Western nations that dominate the international system. Also it describes the likely domestic consequences for countries which have to reconcile the clashing interests of domestic capital and labour and to attract vital foreign industry and investment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`a wide-ranging collection...each of the papers is interesting and there are enough common concerns to give the book coherence and to hold the interest from one contribution to the next.' -- Environment and Planning C: Government and Planning Policy, Issue 4/1, 1986

`a welcome addition to the literature in that it helps to shift the neo-marxian tradition in urban and regional studies from an almost exclusive concern with advanced capitalism to an interest in social and spatial change in developing societies.' -- Progress in Human Geography, 1986

`The collection provides valuable theoretical and empirical material around one of the central and unresolved issues in urban and regional studies, namely the relative importance of external and internal processes in moulding the shape and form of city structure.' -- Sociology, Volume 19 Number 3, August 1985

`a wide-ranging collection...each of the papers is interesting and there are enough common concerns to give the book coherence and to hold the interest from one contribution to the next.' -- Environment and planning C: Government and Policy, Issue 4\1, 1986
